Adobe has introduced a new Creativity Applications solution titled the Creative Cloud. The Creative Cloud products are not covered in the Adobe/UCB license agreement, and UCB activation keys will not work to activate the Creative Cloud products. When downloading Adobe software you must ensure that the products are from the Creative Suite(CS) line and not Creative Cloud.
Simplified Adobe trial download instructions:
Adobe trail downloads for the Creative Suite have been in flux since the release of Creative Cloud and have become unavailable several times. In case the primary trial download method from Adobe does not work, Software Central has a recommended workaround using the Adobe partner site PrdDesignTools.
Primary download method: Navigate to the Adobe CS 6 download site. You may be asked to input your Adobe ID.
Secondary download method in three steps:
For Adobe Acrobat XI please visit this site. Again, an Adobe account is required.

As a part of Operational Excellence, UC Berkeley and Adobe are excited to announce a pilot agreement that provides Adobe Creative Suite software to all campus faculty, staff, and students at no cost to individuals or departments in 2013.  Students will have the ability to download and use the Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium edition while faculty and staff will be able to install and use the full Adobe Creative Suite Master Collection. Both suites include Adobe Acrobat X Pro.
This agreement is part of the Operational Excellence-sponsored Productivity Suite (PS) project, which advances the OE goal of reducing complexity by alleviating the departmental administrative burden of researching, purchasing, updating, and distributing licenses for the most commonly used software and tools.

Things to know:
Adobe software is the industry-standard for software tools when it comes to design, print, web, video, and photography. Being able to proficiently use these tools will give students a competitive advantage not only in the classroom, but also as a sought-after recruit post college, while giving faculty and staff a way to work more creatively, efficiently, effectively, and collaboratively.
Adobe Creative Suite software is a collection of creative tools that help you edit and composite photographs, develop websites, capture and edit video, and design print and online media assets. These tools provide you with the ability to showcase your coursework, projects, portfolios, and even your resume in a compelling and engaging manner.
UC Learning Center. The campus offers free software training to UC Berkeley employees through the UC Learning Center (accessible via the Blu portal — CalNet ID required). In-person and online classes are available. To find a class, search on the software product name. For more information, see the campus Human Resources Computer Software Classes page.
